Maryland Road Closure to Detour Traffic on Delaware Roads


Beginning Monday, traffic will be detoured around a pipe replacement project on Route 568 (Hatchery Road) in Bishopville. The plan is to finish the project by Monday, February 20th. As a result, drivers will see detour signs beginning 9 a.m. Monday, February 13th. If you drive in that area, you’ll need to use the following routes:

MD 367 (Bishopville Road) north into Delaware (becomes Hudson Road),
continue straight past Lynch Road,
left onto DE SR 54 (Lighthouse Road),
continue on DE SR 54 past Lynch Road to Bishopville Road, and
left onto Bishopville Road
At each location, temporary traffic signs, reflective barrels and signs will alert and guide motorists through the detour.
